More about Spiess & Spiess Appartement
Perfect Viennese Experience!
My wife and I spent two wonderful nights at this hotel and would highly recommend it to anyone traveling to Vienna.
For a family run hotel we were especially impressed with the high standard and upkeep of their accomodations. Moreover the owners were very personable and willing to help us as much as possible. The rooms are very large, extremely clean and comfortable and the hotel itself is about a 10 minute walk to the old city centre. If staying here you will definitely not be disappointed!
Beautiful rooms, good location
Spiess and Spiess is in a great location - the underground stop is 100m down the road and there are a few places to eat near by and a large shopping street.
Rooms are beautiful and large and the staff are very helpful and enough information available on Vienna to rival the tourist office. As we were there over Christmas, the board downstairs listing the museums that would be open on Christmas Day was very useful!
relaxing and charming
Very near the tube and the centre. Good breakfasts in a calm room overlooking a garden (should be perfect in the warm weather to sit outside for breakfast) and perfectly laundered napkins in the purest white. Thoroughly recommended, no negatives and very helpful owners.
Warrants its Rating
The apartments are everything good already written. The rooms are spotless, spacious, light and warm - needed in February!
The hosts were excellent, even inviting, at their expense, our Austrian friends to sample breakfast at the premises.
The tube is literally 30 or so paces from the apartments, and you can buy the tickets at reception.
If you go to Vienna, stay there - you won't regret it - I can't think of any adverse comments.
Fantastic city centre B&B
Stayed there last week. Excellent in every way - more than lived up to the reviews on this site and the details on their own site. Lovely people, delicious breakfasts and vast rooms. Only 50 years from the Rochusgasse tube stop so very convenient for the city centre.
Can't wait to return!
Just wanted to say that this was definitely the best hotel I'd ever stayed in, in Europe. We booked 2 rooms on the 4th floor. They had a joining balcony, which overlooked a quaint courtyard. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable. The staff was very accomodating and friendly. Although it's not right in the city center, it's 50 meters from the U3 Rochusgasse stop, which is only 3 stops from Stephanplatz, city centre.
We had a wonderful stay and will stay there again. I have not always agreed with the reviews posted on this site, but this as others have stated is a real gem!
Wonderful and Convenient, and Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice....
We chose Spiess and Spiess after researching the web and especially Trip Advisor. This was one of the very few that had only positive reviews. We wrote directly to the owners and received an immediate response. Mrs. Spiess reserved a room for us and did not require a deposit. Our room was perfect, clean, and comfortable. The breakfasts were filling and healthy, and Mr. Spiess made us fresh orange juice daily, as well as hot cocoa and coffee, and eggs any way we preferred. They provided us with tickets for the subway/bus system, and the location is just a minute's walk to the subway station; this is only about four minutes on the subway to Stephansplatz. There's a very nice Italian restaurant just a minute or two walk away as well. We enjoyed walking nearby and found some nice shops to purchase some items in that I can't find in the USA (i.e. some kitchen utensils). While it's located outside the tourist area, which we were glad about, we found transportation so easy and quick that it was no problem at all. We highly recommend the Spiess and Spiess Appartements.

Extraordinarily nice place
My wife, daughter, and I just returned from a week in Vienna for April vacation. Spiess and Spiess is one of the nicest places we have ever stayed (far nicer than expensive chains in the US). The cost of the room was quite reasonable. The entire place was very clean, measuring up to the pickiest of possible people. Very nice bathroom facilities, beds, and furniture as well as being extremely convenient to the subway system and thus the rest of Vienna. The breakfast was very nice, with quality food, clean surroundings, and Mr. Spiess knowing exactly what you would want after the first morning. Mrs. Spiess was very helpful with suggestions for sight seeing, shopping, and museum/cultural events. She always greeted us with a smile and was genuinely concerned that we enjoyed ourselves. We highly recommend Spiess and Spiess; for the physical facility, the convenience, and the wonderful owners.
Superb accommodation, friendly owners, great place to stay.
My wife and I stayed here last week for 5 nights on our third visit to Vienna. I can only confirm all the positive comments made in other reviews. Spacious rooms, bright, airy, well furnished and equipped and absolutely spotless. Pointless of me posting photos, because in the case of Spiess & Spiess their own website photos are 100% accurate and representative. The U-Bahn station (Rochusgasse) is indeed one minute from the door and literally a few minutes travel by the excellent subway/tube system from the Innere Stadt (city centre). The Greek restaurant a minute along the road is excellent and ideal if you don't wish to travel, for example on a first evening arrival. Tip: if it's busy and you choose to wait for a table at the small bar, you will be served a complimentary glass of Ouzo.
As other reviews have said, Ulla (F. Spiess) is eternally helpful and friendly. (I asked if she could organise flowers from a local florist to be delivered for my wife's birthday; this was duly done and they were placed in our room, arranged in a vase, ready to surprise my wife when we came up from breakfast. The flowers were beautiful and excellent value; thank you Ulla)
I also now understand all the positive comments about Herr Spiess's eggs, super! Other breakfast provisions are good standard and ample choice.
I really can't honestly find any less than positive comments; this will be our home of choice in Vienna from now on.
